I want to keep more than 5 copies of eventgen.log. The log file is located in /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk, but is not one of the standard log files. How do I configure Splunk to keep more copies of this file? It looks like $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/log.cfg has specific lines for each log file and I don't know what to add to this file to manage eventgen.log.
I'm not sure that you can modify that setting in the log.cfg file. You can easily change it directly in the code though. In SA-Eventgen/lib/eventgenconfig.py, change the value of backupCount on line 402:
